thoughts around healthcare cost overall. question today, rising healthcare costs accumulating with fiscal liabilities represent significant challenge. >> our obligations for providing quality and affordable health care for our city employees without jeopardizing the city's fiscal solvency is a priority of mine in the challenge that we have to take together. this year will spend 574 million dollars for the health care of our current employees retirees and dependents, about seven point eight percent of our city spending. in addition to annual bending for healthcare we have an equally significant issue on the horizon. the unfunded cost of paying for healthcare for all current employees once they retire. last november 2012 the city assessed our retiree health-care obligations an estimated the unfunded liability to be 4.4 billion dollars. over the past several years we have taking a number of important steps to address the structural budget issues associated with employee benefits in healthcare. in 2008 the city passed proposition c, charter amendment that lengthen the amount of time an empl
rhetoric, about universal healthcare, and who should get that... should that be extended to the entire population? i think a good place to start is with the children. my god, we should be trying to take care of our children. you know, the issues about adults are very complex, and, you know-- many adults-- the reasons they're unhealthy are because of things they do themselves or do to themselves. but kids are incredibly vulnerable, and i would think it would have to be a priority of ours to try and protect and ensure their health. marc shiffman: there are too many people out there... who are senior citizens-- fixed low income. medicare is their only insurance, and as they get older, as they get sicker, as they need more medications, they are having to make difficult choices. - hi. how are you doing today? - hello, mrs. phillips. - how are you? - it's good to see you. my social worker spends some time almost every day calling up drug companies, filling out forms to get special dispensations for medications. people break pills in half to stretch them, or they just go without because they'
socially, and human suffering, but economic suffering in terms of the health-care consequences and costs. long before a child even crosses the threshold of kindergarten, that child is potentially truncated because they are food insecure, they are hungry, their families to not have enough money for food. i went to pick back up on you, congressman gingrich -- when you say our programs do not work, you are absolutely wrong. i come from a tradition of science, a scientific background. i do scientific research on hunger and have been doing that for 15 years. i want to tell you, the food stamp program is one of the single most important programs that we have in this country. [applause] thank you. we know that food stamps prevent hospitalization for children. it is a good investment. think about pediatric hospitalization, it costs $24,000 for three days. that same amount of money could feed a family of four for one year. that is a great investment because it prevents hospitalization. it promotes job development, cognitive, social, emotional development, so by the time children are in school the
